Zab Judah Wants Danny Garcia Next. Sounds Like A Good Fight!

If not all of you, than most of you have already heard that Zab Judah (42-7-0) is trying to secure a fight against Danny Garcia (25-0-0). Garcia’s recent 4th round knockout of legendary Erik Morales did not come as a surprise to most, as Morales is well past his prime, and most certainly is in no shape to stand and fight with the much younger and hungrier champions.

Not Morales, but maybe Judah is. Of all the possible future opponents for Garcia, Judah actually seems like a viable option, as the fight would likely prove to be not only entertaining but most importantly competitive.

Garcia has done a lot in boxing in the recent past, yet I am still not sold on him. Beating Morales proved only one thing, and it’s that team Garcia sure knows how to waste precious time. I see a completely different fight if Zab faces Danny in the near future.

While Judah is not what he used to be my any means, his hand speed has certainly remained. Garcia is generally an offensive fighter, but against Judah, only power will be to his advantage, as speed and experience will play a very important role but not in his favor. If they happen to stand and bang, I believe that Judah will end up in the same situation as Morales did, but if Garcia has to spend half of the fight chasing Judah while being peppered with shots, it might turn out to be a rough night for the “Swift” Garica.

Boxing’s Historic Return To Brooklyn This Saturday, Oct. 20,

Live on SHOWTIME® (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) From Barclays Center

 

 

NEW YORK (Oct. 17, 2012) – Just three days before they step into the ring as part of world championship boxing’s historic return to Brooklyn, Saturday’s fighters worked out in a ring erected in Barclays Center Daily News Plaza, in front of the arena that will host Saturday’s world championship quadruple-header, live on SHOWTIME (8 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast). 

Fans cheered for the fighters who will take part in the first world championship event in Brooklyn in over 80 years and the kickoff boxing event at the brand new Barclays Center. 

Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia, of Philadelphia, will defend his crown against future Hall of Famer Erik “El Terrible” Morales, of Tijuana, Mexico, in the main event.  In co-featured attractions, Brooklyn’s own Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi puts his WBA Welterweight World Championship on the line against hard-hitting Mexican Pablo Cesar “El Demoledor” Cano, undefeated No. 1 rated WBO middleweight contender Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin, of Manhattan, takes on France’s unbeaten Hassan N’Dam for N’Dam’s WBO Middleweight World Championship and Devon Alexander “The Great,” of St. Louis, faces Miami’s Randall Bailey for Bailey’s IBF Welterweight World Championship.   

Here’s what the fighters had to say on Wednesday:

 

DANNY GARCIA: 

“I feel strong, I’m well prepared and I can’t wait to show case my skills.

 

“I expect a lot of fans from Philadelphia to come.  Everyone is coming to this fight.  It’s big. 

“I always go for the knockout, the fans love it.  That’s what I do, I bring knockout power.

 

“Definitely expect a win.  I’ve been training so hard.  I’m too smart and I can’t see myself losing to anyone anytime soon.” 

ERIK MORALES:

 

“Lots of people have seen my fights.  Even though I’m not at home, I know lots of people will watch and they will see my hard work and effort in the ring. 

“We’re totally prepared.  We are ready and anticipating stepping in the ring.  We’re very hurt over what happened in March and we have done everything possible to be ready for this Saturday.

 

“You don’t want to miss it.  It will be an explosive and historic fight.  You will see an Erik Morales who is ready.”
